JP Total has been serving homeowners on the Front Range for seven
years. We strongly feel that the combination of services
create the best possible conditions for your lawn to look its absolute
best. We practice all of our services (aeration, discut/overseed,
fertilization and Revive™) on our large commercial accounts and get
outstanding results that can be achieved on the residential lawn as
well. Whether an existing customer or new, give us a
call. We'll be happy to serve you any way we can!
Most of you know what a vital ingredient this service is to a
consistently healthy and vigorous lawn. Done in the fall when your
lawn's root system is at its highest activity, Deep core aeration will
create thousands of growth pockets. These will help your lawn's
root system to expand and reduce thatch buildup as well as let
fertilizer reach the root zone and air flow to invigorate your lawn.
Disc Cutting & Overseeding
This service to your lawn consists of using a machine with vertical
blades that cut 1-1/2 to 2-inch slits into your lawn. A constant
flow of premium grass seed is dropped directly into the groove created
by the disc cutter. This is beneficial to do every few
years. The disc cut itself helps relieve your lawn of choking
debris without the dramatic tearing of a power rake and the new seed
will thicken your lawn, helping it resist disease, weeds and extreme
heat. Over seeding your lawn will help keep - or get back to -
that fresh sod look.
Application of Revive™ soil conditioner will help the soil to take
up water and use it more efficiently. This is especially helpful
for hard compacted soils. It will add organic matter back to your
soil helping to increase its vitality. Remember, healthy soil
promotes a healthy lawn.
Spring fertilization will feed your lawn with a slow release feeding
of nitrogen, phosphorous and potash. Combined with the aeration,
the fall fertilization will ensure a solid growth of both the shoot and
root of your lawn.
A broadleaf weed spray application will help kill weeds such as
dandelion, chickweed and clover. We use a practice known as
"spot spraying" which reduces the amount of pesticide actually
used by only spraying the weeds - not the entire lawn. A
broadleaf weed spray will only kill those weeds which are present, it
cannot prevent new weeds from invading your lawn by way of weed seeds.
Pre-emergent Weed Control
Pre-emergent weed control kills weed seeds before they
germinate. Timing of application is critical for pre-emergence
because if the seed has already germinated with warmer weather, the
application won't work. Pre-emergent applications therefore should
generally be done in early spring between February and April.
For lawns with large thatch build-up, power raking will help open the
root zone to water, air and fertilizer. It will also allow area
for new grass to grow up through a "choking" lawn.
